COVID-19 and beyond: We are ready

Dear Second Step family,

With the Coronavirus (COVID-19) impacting our communities, all of us at Second Step want you to know it won’t impact our commitment to serving you.

We love our customers and take very seriously our role as a responsible manufacturer and online retailer.

Since our founding 31 years ago, we have witnessed many historical challenges. There is no question this is a time of great uncertainty, but we feel confident that by sticking together and supporting each other, we’ll emerge from this stronger than before.

We are ready. We urge you to be ready, too. 

Second Step’s mission has always been centered on enabling consumers to work on their physical therapy safely at home using the Gait Harness System product line.

We operate in office locations which facilitate remote working, with easy access to our systems. Our systems and infrastructure are resilient and have been in place since our founding.

As a result, we currently do not anticipate any interruption to the continuity of product manufacturing, sales service, customer experience, or ability to support our customers. Should the situation change we will notify you immediately.

Quality Control

We take pride in our everyday and increased hygiene practices to maintain a clean and sanitary environment in our manufacturing sites. We are a veteran owned business, and our products have always been 100% US made. CDC protocols are rigorously followed.

Because we ship to you directly from our manufacturing sites, not from retail storefronts, highest product cleanliness is quality controlled from start to finish. We sell and ship only factory new, warrantied, unused products.

Service: A Note on Fulfillment, Shipping and Delivery Times 

Because we are an online retailer, our telephone and online operations continue uninterrupted. Our digital on-line order process allows all customers to order our products 24/7.

Our offices remain operating normal business hours.  We have suspended international orders. As always, enjoy FREE SHIPPING on all US orders.

To make things easier for you, subscribe to our monthly e-newsletter and receive a Home Safety Sale discount (valid March 23 – April 13, 2020) on our products.

Supplies are limited, first come first served. Contact us at to enroll and receive sale pricing.

At present, orders placed on through our on-line Product Order Form are fulfilled and shipped within five business days. You may also call in orders to 877.299.STEP (7837).

Our incredible teams at manufacturing, sales and order fulfillment are taking every precaution to ensure that you order is handled with care and in a timely manner.

Our LTL freight provider has been providing on time pickups and deliveries. However, customers in regions heavily impacted by COVID-19 may experience delivery delays. We monitor all orders from the moment they leave our dock to confirmed delivery to your door.
